Felix is struggling at school. His ADHD makes it hard for him to concentrate and his grades are slipping. Everyone keeps telling him to try harder, but no one seems to understand just how hard he finds it. When Mum suggests Felix spends time with his grandfather, Felix can’t think of anything worse. Granddad hasn’t been the same since Grandma died. Plus, he’s always trying to teach Felix boring chess. But sometimes the best lessons come in the most unexpected of places, and Granddad soon shows Felix that there’s everything to play for.

The story was very fun and exciting… but the author could have been more creative instead of using real life things e.g. Nando’s, McDonald’s.

I thought this book was very good. I love chess, it is my favorite board game. My favorite character was Franke because he knew all the chess moves in history! Jake would have been my favorite character but he didn’t like chess. I Stewart Foster writes more!
